Overall Satisfaction with ThoughtSpot

ThoughtSpot is our data warehouse linked to our application for daily use by end-users as well as internally by al areas of the company. It is used for a variety of reporting (sales, inventory, billing) as well as for developing projections. The data warehouse we have developed is quite extensive.
  • Excellent natural language
  • Good, clean UI
  • Highly performant
  • Ongoing functional support could be improved
  • Quicker reaction to patch / bug fixes
  • Increase in self-service day to day system maintenance
  • Positive impact to ROI
  • Known name in the industry is a positive selling point
  • Feature rich offering contributes to closing deals
Most new users are able to navigate the product comfortably within a week. By using a train the trainer philosophy, we are able to focus our efforts on key members within an organization to get them up to speed quickly with the necessary knowledge for them to take what they have learned and use that to bring others on board,
Accuracy and timeliness are key requirements and selling points for our data warehouse deployment. The product is very stable data-wise, allowing us to continually update the data warehouse to within 15 -> 30 minutes of our transactional information. This gives users confidence in their ability to use this information quickly to their competitive advantage.
The UI is very clean, easy to use and navigate. The performance is very good, quick. Performance for us has not been a concern since we deployed the product initially, nor have we had to initiate any performance-related (hardware) upgrades. That is a key contributor to the usability of this product. Our ability to link it with our application seamlessly is also a plus.
This is an area where I cannot provide any detailed information (positive or negative) as I do not have any direct involvement with ThoughtSpot's integration with SpotIQ.
ThoughtSpot is an excellent product for deploying as an off the shelf data analysis tool. Its development of natural query language gives software companies the flexibility and options to both internally develop standard usage reports, graphs, data analysis while also giving any day to day user of the product the capability to develop their own ad hoc reporting.
